The streets of Lisbon are getting a makeover to clear them of unsightly cables that spoil the look of buildings. The focus will be on removing so-called “dead” cables that are no longer in use, completely taking them off the facades. Active cables will be discreetly tucked away underground.
Right now, the city council is mapping out all the ugly cables. In a trial run, they will be removed from two streets initially. After that, the city council plans to extend the cleanup across the entire city.
